About Florent

Florent is the Technical Director of Matta Consulting, a boutique security consultancy firm with headquaters in London, UK. He has a MS in Real Time and Embedded programming from Université de Technologie Belfort-Montbéliard.

By day, he is raising security awareness; training people and breaking things on request for a select few clients, and annoying vendors exposing obvious bugs in popular security products. In 2012, he was awarded a Pwnie Award at Black Hat for exposing the Most Epic Fail of the year.

By night, and for over a decade now, he is secretly working on Freenet, a decentralized, peer-to-peer censorship resistant tool allowing to publish and retrieve content anonymously.
